I've created a TM with Workbench that I'm currently using. I need to export it to .tmx to be able to import it back to a new TM. Unfortunatelly, when I open the TM I want to export in Workbench, I don't have the option to export it, since this is greyed out.

Thank you,

Open it exclusive Dec 16, 2009

Any import or export task in Trados requires that you open the memory in exclusive mode. There is a checkbox in the Open dialog that you have to check.

Other than this, I sincerely encourage you to seek training about Trados via some vendor or training center in your area. Trados is a rather industrial tool and knowing it better will save you tons of frustration and will make you more prepared to better serve your customers with Trados projects. Good luck!
